Interview with Dean Elbe

The Clinical Handbook of Psychotropic Drugs for Children and Adolescents (CHPD-CA4) is a unique resource to help clinicians make the right choices about psychotropic medications for younger patients. The fourth edition of this widely acclaimed reference has been fully updated and expanded. Packed with comparison charts and instantly recognizable icons, readers can find the information they need at a glance.

We were very pleased to be able to launch the fourth edition at the 65th Annual Meeting of American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in Seattle, October 22–27, 2018. The book and the online version of the Handbook were presented at the Hogrefe Publishing stand in the conference hall, where Dean was also interviewed by our Publishing Manager, Robert Dimbleby, and where he held a book signing.

In a series of clips being released one after the other, watch Dean talk about:
